Newcastle fans make it clear which area they want McClaren to strengthen next

Premier League outfit Newcastle United have signed three players so far his season.

Newcastle United fans want head coach Steve McClaren to make signing a defender a top priority.

The Premier League outfit have signed as many as three players so far this summer, and it seems that the supporters want them to recruit one more.

Midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum has arrived from Dutch champions PSV, while striker Aleksandar Mitrovic and defender Chancel Mbemba have joined from Belgian giants Anderlecht.

Newcastle struggled defensively last season, which was a main reason why they almost got relegated to the Championship.

Under McClaren in the 2015-16 campaign, the Magpies will be looking to finish in the top 10 of the Premier League.

For that to happen, Newcastle need to be able to defend much better than they did under John Caver in the second half of last season.

The club’s fans appear to believe that signing a defender is hugely important, as the following comments posted on various articles on HITC Sport show:

PJR09: “We need another Center Back NOW - worst defence in premier league you have had 3 years to sort it out.”

Chris hosking: “Sort defence out i like the kingsley n jie story we need abit of him on the wing cutting in.”

Porchiestreet: “We need a defense.......... 50,000 Fans can see it so whats the problem. Buy a Centre Half then you numpty and things may just be a tad easier.”
